can you clean out hydraulic tappets?


Recommended Posts

as above.


i found this web page but not too sure that i would follow everything on it, especially sanding the tappets down lol.

but as a general outline, is it a good idea to strip them apart like that to give them a check internally and properly clean them out. because if i remember correctly mine werent exactly 'springy' when i removed them.


this is the site i mentioned

Or buy new ones


but that wasnt the question. besides a new set from ford even with the discount is over £200 that i might not need to spend if they all work. just wondered wheather stripping them down like in the link is actually a good idea or not.
